Dynamic Electric Motor Analysers
Baker's dynamic motor test and monitoring instruments are built to conduct condition monitoring tests of motors and generators from a Motor Control Centre (MCC), or through a Baker EP1000 connection unit.
The Baker EXP4000 dynamic motor analyser is a low-voltage, AC- and battery-operated instrument that test motors and generators while they are in operation. The EXP4000 provides health and performance data on the motor, the motor's load, and incoming power to assess motor performance and suitability in context of the entire machine system it supports.
The Baker NetEP dynamic motor analysis system is a permanently-installed device which uses the same technology as the Baker EXP4000 to monitor up to 32 motors on up to 7 voltage buses. By setting parameter threshold conditions in the console software, this device can serve as a real-time alerting system for motor health, especially in locations where high-availability is critical.
The Baker EXP4000 is a powerful tool, designed for site use, to analyse the motor running under its normal load.
It tracks multiple data types to identify trends that indicate potential problems. Voltage and current are measured and a series of parameters are then calculated, including power quality, rotor bar condition, % load, % operating efficiency, average torque value, torque ripple showing variation within process, monitoring of start-up transients (volts, current and torque), and much more.
NetEP is a permanently-installed, fully automated machine system monitoring solution. It continuously acquires health and performance data on electric motors and the rotating machine systems they operate.
With the Baker NetEP, maintenance professionals can safely gather performance data on critical motors around the clock, 365 days a year. They can monitor the condition of motors and the equipment they drive from the convenience and safety of a central office. The system helps reduce costly unplanned downtime by providing information that improves maintenance decision making and planning. The dashboard display of the NetEP’s associated software clearly shows motors in an alarm condition.
